After 32 months today I got 801.

Thanks everyone for helping.
It really feels like winning a war especially when you donít get contacted by CO or any person.

I think what makes my file get review a bit faster was complaining on departments website and when didnít got back to me I made a complaint to ombudsman too. Everything was paced up after that.

Thanks again and all the very best to those who are waiting.
Congratulations for 801 grant Preeti !!

In order to go to Senior Teacher and then Level 3 Classroom Teacher, I have to have PR. So, now I'm stalled out at work. And the scary part is that the processing time is showing 18 to 24 months. Sigh. I know I'm far from the only one that may be stuck in limbo for a long time. Just a little vent due to my frustration of finding I can't do the things I need to until that grant comes in.

So happy to have this forum!!! LOL
Hi LadyRogueRayne,

Your timeline is quite similar to mine. You are right it is a long waiting game and I do understand the frustration. With mortgage, have you tried talking to different banks and different brokers? Our mortgages were recently approved (last month) with the combined value of a little over a million. My partner is citizen and I am on 820, our visa circumstance should be similar if not same. Keep in mind you might have to bare with higher interest rates with some banks (that would allow visa 820).

Further, we went with CBA as NAB and ANZ rejected us.

Applied 820 - Aug 16
Requested docs - Feb 17
820 Granted - March 17
Applied 801 - Aug 18

V_NorthenBeaches, may I ask if
you have a full time job? (I don't mean contract or casual position)
you work for more than a year in that position without changing job?
you have a dependant? (Child under 18, etc)
Thanks

Hi Appguy,

Yes, I have a full time (permanent) job.
Yes and No, I changed job in Sep 17 and applied for a loan Aug/Sep 18, so around 11 months. However, my job is still in the same industry, my new (and current) job is slightly more advance than the previous one. I have been working in this industry for longer than 3 years.
No, we don't have any dependent.

But to be completely honest, the main earner is my partner. My job is just a supportive factor to get a larger loan than what he would get on his own.

My point is that our visa situation can be accepted by some banks out there that believe you can service the liability. Just need to talk to the right bank and the right broker.

Hope this helps.

Yes, it was pretty helpful. Thanks a lot. I just wanted to match your condition with what banks told us.

When we applied for joint home loan (multiple banks) they all rejected us for the following conditions:
1. Both must be PR or Citizen (I was not)
2. Both should work full time, not contract, nor casual (I was on a contract teaching in a well known university with a good income, my wife was working full time in a small company)
3. Both should have worked at least one year in their current position. (My wife changed a company for a better one, and my contract was per 6 months)
4. If there is at least a dependant such as a child 18-, it affects the loan.
Later we asked for single home loan, sure they rejected us because my wife could not pass the condition 3. But they said even if that condition would be satisfied and she would be approved, because I am her dependant, they would slash the loan to almost nothing. When I asked "how am I her dependant? I earn way more money than her" I laughed "She is somehow my dependant.", the manager replied "You are on short contract, it can halt at any moment". The manager had a point.


So, I believe if a bank closes their eyes on the first condition, the other two must be satisfied.
For us, at the moment no option left except we receive the 801 result.

Yes, I'm aware of other banks and we've done our research. As I'll be the main one on the mortgage (I'm the sole earner right now due to my husband's eye surgeries), that's where we're running into the issues. Sucks to have to wait, but I'd rather do that than have to pay high interest rates.

Just hoping that we can get a quicker grant and aren't waiting the full 18-24 months. The home loan isn't the big issue, we'll simply have to wait on that...the main issue is that I'm stuck in my career until the grant, as I can't do any of my further qualifications until I have PR. I'm actually qualified to do my Senior Teacher/Level 3 Classroom Teacher, as I've been teaching for over 14 years. Unfortunately, I'm stuck until the PR comes through, which means I can't advance, can't take on higher levels in my school and can't advance in pay. I'm sure I'm not the only one facing these issues...just needed a whinge. LOL

As it's only been 2 months, I didn't think I could do an inquiry form, or that they'd even look at one. I'm not stressed waiting a few more months...just not waiting 18-24 months. That is what has me worried, because I will miss out on advancement/higher pay. On top of that, don't want to get stuck into another year long lease once this one is up, as we're wanting to buy a house before that happens. We have a good 6 months until we have to worry about that at this stage.
